Robert Vaughn Dies: ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E’ Star Was 83

Robert Vaughan diesRobert Vaughn, whose Napoleon Solo on NBC’s spy yarn The Man From U.N.C.L.E. set TV’s 1960s standard for suavity and crimebusting cool, died this morning after a brief battle with acute leukemia. He was 83. His manager Matthew Sullivan confirmed the news to Deadline.

Vaughn’s lengthy list of credits includes everything from an uncreditedrole in The Ten Commandments to his angry, shouting audience member on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, but he will no doubt be remembered for Napoleon Solo, television’s answer to James Bond. U.N.C.L.E. aired from 1964-68, and paired Vaughn’s elegant, dark-haired Solo with David McCallum’s blond Russian Illya Kuryakin, an early example of Cold War detente in the battle against global evildoers.


The foul stench of fascism in the US

American fascism Throughout this summer and autumn, I have interviewed fellow minorities, asking them about their feelings and experiences regarding this presidential election. In all of these interviews, one thing was clear: We knew this was coming.

To some of us, it hung like a foul smell in the air. The acrid stench that generations before somehow learned to live with, though it choked them. Many of us coughed and spluttered when that suffocating air filled our lungs. Some of us cried out in warning.
